    Is this sub any good??

    ok well i've been looking at amps to power 2 12" type R subs and i was wonder what everyone thinks about the RF 700S

    http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S...75700S&o=p&a=0

    ...the reason i ask is because it was suggested to me at best buy ( i think they are about $500 there too) and with my discount i can get one for $268.84...

    so will this be enough to power my 2 12"...if not can you suggest another RF (since i can ge almost half off)...

    or should i stick with the jbl 600.1 that i was gonna go with


    http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S...BP6001&o=m&a=0


    thanks...

    i would go with something a little bigger, something in the 1000w or more range each sub can take at least 1000w

    sorry i just realized i typed sub instead of amp to the topic (should be "is this amp any good)...


    anyway, the type r is rated for 300watts rms and 1000 max

    Run the amp at 2 ohms stereo and NO you dont need a bigger amp. That one would do just fine. Its Rated at 350x2 @ 2ohm so expect like 400+ Due to underratings.

    http://www.ugonet.com/ get your jbl here its less $ and is a power house. if you wanna take advantage of your discount the 700s would be ok to but not as powerful as the 1200.1. just depends how you feel about having a local shop as compared to shipping it back if you have probs

    THE 700S *****!!!!!!

    ok dude you work at best buy than your dumb for not buying your stuff before they got their new lines. those new 700S amps **** balls. i work part time in their install bay and i have never gotten a test sheet on one of those that was better than %62 efficient and no more than 760 watts. last year you could have gotten the 1000.1bd RF amplifier and that thing thumps hard. basically you have nothing good to choose from at best buy anymore b/c all the new line of RF that they carry **** balls now. get the JBL 1200.1 much more bang and much better amp.

    wanna bet?

    er that wasnt a class d amp best buy sold that was a punch amp not a bd.
    it may be a punch series but it is a BD amplifier. considering the fact that i used to work in that area and knew everythign about all of our products. so it reads as this rockford fosgate 1000.1 class bd amplifier.

    keep it thumpin,
    adam
